What is your mission at NVS?/What will you be working with?

I will be working as a research assistant for the Missing Link project.

Which division will you be working at?

The Division of Physiotherapy, in Charlotte Ytterberg’s group.

What do you look forward to the most in your new position?

To challenge myself in a new field, and to establish knowledge that was previously more theoretical, and to get a real insight into how research is conducted. Also, to get to know and learn from colleagues who are experts!

Where have you been active before and what have you done earlier?

I moved to Stockholm in February this year and started to work as an ambulatory physiotherapist in elderly care, while finishing my master’s degree. I have previous experience from primary care and rehabilitation within neurology.

When you are not working, what do you do for recreation?

I spend time at the gym or outdoors running. Besides that, I like to explore and enjoy new experiences, good food, and nature together with family and friends.

Are you reading a book at the moment? Which one?

Introduction for new KI employees... Joking aside, I’m reading a book called The mountains sing, by Nguyen Phan Que Mai, that I bought for my mom after we had travelled together in Vietnam. The book takes place there, before and after the war.

Tell us about the most beautiful place you have visited

Many!! Kuang Si, a waterfall in Laos, if I have to choose one.

What makes you happy?

To come home to my cat who greets me with a meow and rubs up against my leg. At the moment she is “at home” in Skåne because of my limited space here, but it makes me happy to think about her.
